Your dream list is already present and available at the price points you want - if you include used cameras. I am going to insert the model names in your list and their price points.

If Nikon offered the following full-frame models, would you be happy?

12 Mpx FF, pro autofocus, 5 fps (8 fps with grip), under $1000

This is used D700 - around $1200-1400 on craigslist.

12 Mpx FF, pro body, pro autofocus, 9 fps, $1600

This is used D3 - around $2k on craigslist.

24 Mpx FF, enthusiast autofocus, 6 fps, under $2000

New D610

16 Mpx FF, enthusiast autofocus, class leading low-light sensor, 5.5 fps, $2700

New Df

36 Mpx FF, pro autofocus, class leading low-light sensor, 4 fps, under $3000

New D800

12 Mpx FF, pro body, pro autofocus, class leading low-light sensor, 9 fps, $3200

Used D3s - see them on craigslist around the same price ($3200 - $3300 - see some with high shutter counts for as low as $2900-3000).

16 Mpx FF, pro body, pro autofocus, class leading low-light sensor, 10 fps, $4400

Used D4 - goes around the price you mention (may be more toward $4500 - I see very lightly used listings at $4500)

16 Mpx FF, pro body, pro autofocus, class leading low-light sensor, 11 fps, $6500

New D4s

Looks like you should be happy camper. By putting forward your list - may be you wanted to show people the cameras they need are there already?

New at the price points like $1000 for pro autofocus, 12 MP FF, 8 fps with a grip - just not likely to happen regardless how much Nikon improves their model lineup.
